This is our second year in the Tidewater. It was recommended by friends and we weren't disappointed. The beach is beautifu and the sunsets are amazing. It also has a nice theatre with free movies for guests as well as a gym with an amazing view of the Ocean as you walk the treadmill. They have a lending library as... More

We rented directly through Wyndam. my wife had to have emergency surgery three weeks prior to our arrival date. All I wanted to do was move our months reservation back a month and was told their policy is to keep any or all money paid down to do that.If you rent here go to an outside agency with cancellation insurance...

This place was very clean and right on the beach. Perfect for taking walks on the beach and watching the Sun go down. Great location, not far from shopping and restaurants. The staff were very accommodating and all this for 150 a night! The bed was good, but I wish I had my own pillow. Other than that it was... More

I can only attest to a few things about this property because we hardly ever left the room. I'm not going to say exactly when we went because I don't want it to be crowded the next time we go. All the rooms are right on the water, no buildings to block the view, but not all have a Master... More

On the beach. amazing rooms! Staff was very friendly! Definitely the place to stay! (: Going back in April. If there was one thing I would say is that the pool could have been cleaned better. But i didn't use the pool. Not with the beach right there in my face lol We stayed on the top floor (30th) beautiful.... More

Traveled to Panama City for the first time in June for our annual Florida family vacation. The condo we had was ok but it was a poor comparison to our condo in Destin. The Tidewater seems to be well worn and most of the people we encountered were not friendly. The beach was also not as clean as Destin. I... More

So did you hear the one about the family who spent half of their vacation waiting on rides? No it wasn't Disney-- it was waiting on the elevators at Tidewater!! Honestly, it wasn't that bad, but there were times when we would be pulling our hair out and other times we actually gave up and walked down the stairs. Since... More

When we were down there PCB had a Pirates of the High Sea festival. It seemed to be a great attraction for families of all ages. We walked to Pier park almost every day. We walked the beach everyday. We had a great time and will be back again soon!

Doing all the research ahead of time prepared me for the elevator situation which I found to only be bad on the Saturday check-in. That being said I would probably never stay here during the busy season because of the elevator factor.There were plenty of carts in the lobby to unload our stuff and the walkway from the parking garage...
